A Review of the Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 XF Lens

In the last few years, Viltrox has earned a reputation for manufacturing lenses at some of the lowest prices out there that somehow still compete with more expensive options. Their latest offering, the AF 75mm f/1.2 XF, offers Fujifilm X Series users a nice combination of an ultra-wide aperture and a portrait focal length at a very reasonable price. This great video review takes a look at the new lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage. 

Coming to you from Benj Haisch, this excellent video review takes a look at the new Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 XF lens for Fujifilm X Series mirrorless cameras. At $549, the 75mm f/1.2 is priced at a considerably lower level than many comparable portrait lenses, though it still comes with features and capabilities far past what you might expect, including weather-sealing for working in inclement conditions, impressive sharpness even wide open (which is particularly important considering the demanding sensor in the new X-T5 and X-H2), excellent control of aberrations, and attractive bokeh. It looks like the XF 75mm f/1.2 is a heck of an impressive lens for the price and one that can compete with those double its cost. Check out the video above for Hasich's full thoughts on the lens.
